Smoked Salmon Quiche

Favorite Restaurant Quiche Recipe

This restaurant recipe for Smoked Salmon Quiche is often featured on Sunday special sheets. On Sundays and other special days, it easily sells out.

What makes this restaurant breakfast recipe memorable is the fact that it is made with smoked wild Sockeye or King salmon.

I choose not to serve anything except wild salmon. If you want more information about why, just click here for additional information.
